The first thing we would like you to do is to register as a member of the net community. Here is the link to do that http://www.ucalgary.ca/alumni/netcommunity. The Net Community is a communication program organized by the University of Calgary Alumni Association. They keep the data base for all alumni of the University but it provides the Department with the information it needs should we want to contact you with special announcements or to send you an alumni newsletter. *We urge you to keep your contact coordinates up-to-date to register these changes* as you relocate or change e-mail addresses by either logging in to Net Community, phoning 403-220-8500, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org <mailto:email@example.com>. We do not want to lose contact with you just because you have graduated.
As you know, you can keep your university e-mail address and can also utilize a forwarding function with that address.
Second, we want to hear from you as your life unfolds. Career changes are of specific interest to us but so are awards, unique experiences, further education, special challenges and goals, and your discovery of some of the ways you are using your sociological training. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any news you may have.
Third, we hope you view the Department website on a regular basis to see what is happening in the Department of Sociology and also click on the alumni tab for special news of interest to alumni. This is a good way to keep in touch.
Keep checking back here to see what is happening!!
Below is a list of thoughts shared with us by last year’s Alumni about how they encountered the job world after graduation. This is not meant to be exhaustive but merely some of their reflections which might be useful to all our Alumni. Many thanks to all those who contributed to this list.
